An easy thing to do with possible unexpected benefits.

There's a lot in the news now about a general rise in activism/"resistance". If you're looking for something to do, or even if you've picked some spots, I urge everyone to donate 4.68/month to this organization which will divide all donations equally among the 468 Democratic candidates. We need to encourage slivers of Dem life in red areas. Who knows what will happen if they can drum up a critical mass? Places that the national Dems aren't paying attention to.

Is there anything more than finding a "Make America Great Again" hat in his locker?

I'm desperate to find some excuse to dig myself out of this quagmire of ambivalence. I Googled "What does Tom Brady say about Trump" and couldn't find anything but this about the hat... Maybe he's not guilty of anything more than being abysmally a-political and travelling in very rich circles? The Clintons used to be friends with Trump.

What can we do to tell the world about Heinz fraud?

They say they gave their employees a day off instead of buying a super bowl ad.

BUT LOOK AT THE REPLIES LATER ON IN THIS THREAD!!! THEY ONLY GAVE IT TO SALARIED EMPLOYEES!!!!!!!

Can anyone give me a better word than "fraud" for my title?

Can we count on the the judiciary and even the legislature getting royally pissed?

I'm just waiting for the other two branches of government to wake up and say, "Not so fast, Donny!" I'm counting on our government living up to what I was taught in grade school. Checks and balances. No dictators here, thank you!!!

Our democracy is far more fragile than some might grasp and Trump is engaging in a concerted effort to undermine the workings of it.

Let's be blunt, because the stakes demand it: An independent federal judiciary is our last, best hope at preventing Trump from violating the US Constitution and illegally grabbing power.

Is it worth donating to Dems in very red districts and states?

Obama called on Dems to establish a presence in every part of the country. I like that. We shouldn't cede anything. There's a web site where you can donate money that will be distributed equally to races where there's a Democratic presence. I like the idea of supporting hopeless candidates in red districts, so that they get media coverage and find other Dems and maybe next time, or next, next time get somewhere. Of course donations to this site will result in miniscule money for each candidate. I'm only giving $10/month. Do you think this is worth it?

Is this a good way to move forward?

Any evidence of Trump voters having second thoughts?
